It's supposed to snow tonight and through the weekend (9-15 inches, 22-39 cm). We've had a lot of advance notice about the storm. That's usually the kiss of death. The storm inevitably passes. I hope it doesn't. I'd like to be snowed in over the weekend. There's something so cozy about staying inside while it's snowing and blowing outside.
Words of the day (die Woerter des Tages): der Schneesturm, blizzard. It's fun to say as are die Schneegestoeber, snow flurries and die Schneebeckung, snow cover.
